Boston Architectural College Library

The special collection now known as Memorial Library began in 1889 with the incorporation of the Boston Architectural Club. It contains approximately 1,600 titles including books purchased by both the school and individual members and reflects the Beaux Arts and Grand Tour traditions. Highlights of the Memorial Library include original travel sketchbooks and the Club’s published Yearbooks and Sketchbooks. These document the work of members, students, and teachers of the time. The holdings of the Boston Architectural College Archives constitute the institutional memory of the college from 1889 to the present. The Archives preserves correspondence, drawings, photographs, publications, posters, course descriptions, and event invitations.

Material for this collection provided by the Boston Architectural College Library.
